Good Morning America weather anchor Sam Champion and his longtime boyfriend Rubem Robierb are engaged to be married. We are thrilled and so excited and thank everyone for their good wishes, Champion said. Ive never been happier to share a bit of personal news, he tweeted.
Champion and Robierb met through mutual friends a few years ago in Miami, where Robierb lives. Robierb, who was born in Brazil, is a fine-arts photographer who shows his work in Miami, Atlanta, Santa Monica and New York. The two plan to wed later this year possibly on New Year's Eve.
I really don’t want to know this.
Now I have it in my head each person saying to the other, upon waking, “Good morning.”
ROFL. That guy makes Anderson Cooper look manly.
Deluded fools. They are not engaged and cannot be married.
Robin Roberts never came out.
Not such a big secret, really. I mean, cloudy with a chance of penis?
Somebody wants a green card.
I need to clean my glasses...I thought it said one of them was a fine-arse photographer...
I wonder what lovely honeymoon spot the happy couple will choose to consummate their vows?
I’m glad I don’t have to do their laundry.
That makes sense. Champion (what a name) was in NYC when I lived there back in the 1990’s. Had a notion then. Good to know the gaydar is calibrated.
Of course, until he announced it to the public, I’d have had no idea, and thus, well, you know . . .
The whole affair would cause a dog riding on a gut wagon to puke.
I normally wouldnt comment but I really feel the need to get this out. I for one am happy for them. I don’t think our government has any right EVER to tell somebody they can’t get married! If you don’t agree thats your problem! It’s bull crap this debate even goes on in the United States! You can’t take away somebody’s rights because you don’t agree. I know there are alot of people that feel the same way I do. I would encourage them to stand up and speak out. This injustice has got to end. Congrats to the couple.
Just a suggestion for the ceremony.
Excuse me? Did you say your name is Rheumem Rhubarb? Oh, sorry, I got it wrong. You don’t have to be a snotty sourpuss about it.
A male attempting to mate with another male’s anal canal is insane. A female attempting to mate with another female by using a rubber appliance is insane. It’s like having Aunt Rosie sitting at your dinner table trying to eat by sticking a turkey baster in her ear and telling you that’s her lifestyle. It may be, but it’s still insane behavior.
I hear what you are saying. But, what rights exactly are taken away? And, how exactly do you define marriage in the law? What is your position on the polygamy debate and the incest debate? If you are saying that nobody has any right to tell you who you can or can’t marry, then it logically leads to discussing whether group marriage, polygamy, or even consensual incest relationships will be so recognized.
Please don’t surrender the language to the liberal soddomites. Always put homosexual “marriage” or “engagement” in quotes to signify non-compliance and disagreement. You won’t be violating FR posting requirements to add the “quote” marks.
Well I opened it up and saw a bunch of women. Sorry to inform you but I was more turned on by the picture above. Thanks for thinking of me. Maybe this would be a good time to say I don’t hug a bible that I don’t own. I Dont agree with the old fashion Republican ways.
Hate to be picky here, but last I checked there’s no cervix or uterus attached to a man’s colon. As such, how do you consumate a same sex marriage?
Ma’am ... your attention, please.
If you think its insane then don’t talk about it. Who in the hell our any of us to judge somebody for who they like?? Seriously this conversation is taking us back and not moving us forward.
Thank you for your concerns. I can assure you I will last until I choose otherwise. I promise.
It was nice knowin’ ya! lol
I gotta remember to read this site
“after” dinner unless I want to Bieber
The food. Yikes!
Not everybody that gets married has kids. This world is over populated anyways. We should not be looking to compete with China in this department.
She already chose.
” ...not moving us forward.”
I consider this a “tell.”
I don’t give a damn if two women or two men want to engage in sodomy in private, but don’t refer to it as marriage—it can be a “civil union”, it can be a “butt-party”, it can be a “homo-coupling” -call it anything you like, but it ISN’T “marriage”, and if those who demand it BE referred to as “marriage” keep up this ignorant, intolerant rant, it becomes more and more obvious that the comment is more “political” than emotional.
“lean forward” if you wish, Ohiobelle, but quit co-opting language to suit perverted stances.
Who has the authority to call out the kitties?
I really, REALLY hope that you’re under age 25. (I’d like to say 21, but that would be optimistic.)
If you’re any older than 25, you are lost, and it will only be all the more difficult for you as time goes on.
You are making an assumption that marriage should be any two people. Who are you to judge those who wish to live in polygamy, for example? You are not adhering to your own standards. You would define marriage as any two people. Your definition also discriminates against some people. Why would you limit marriage to just two?
On the one hand, you say that nobody has a right to tell anyone who they can or can’t marry, but on the other hand, you apparently want to see marriage defined in a certain way. Those who wish to preserve traditional marriage also want to see marriage defined in a certain way. You have a lot in common with the marriage traditionalists.
